Dormice Friends


Hi, today I have a card to share with you that I have made using a cute stamp of Dormice fro Dimension. I have stamped the image with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured it using Copic Markers. I then added some Glossy Accents to their eyes and Fran-tage. The backing papers are from Joy Crafts and some Kraft card stock for the layering. I have also added some Fran-tage to the corners of the backing papers and some Gold Gilding Wax to lift the layers. The doilies, ribbon and trim are from my stash as is the sentiment stamp, which had been embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. The card is 6 x 6 inches and the sketch I have used is Sketch #89 from the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog.

Cattitude!


Hello, sorry I haven't been around lately as a friend passed away a few weeks ago and I haven't had the heart to do anything crafty until today. I have a card to show you that I have made using a stamp from Funstamps called 'Fishing'. I have had this stamp for years now, but never used it before now. I have stamped the image with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured using Copic Markers. I have also added some Glossy Accents to the fish bowl. The background papers are from a scrap booking paper and embellishment collection called 'Bow Wow Meow' but I'm not sure what company they are from as they are several years old now. The 'Cattitude' sticker as well as the fish bowl and paw print stickers are also from the same collection, as are the fish brads. I have also used some Core'dinations card stock and some ribbons and Perfect Pearls from my stash. The card is 6 x 6 inches.

Pink Carnation


Hello, today I have a card to show you that I have made using a selection of stamps from Crafty Individuals and a Carnation stamp from Dimension. I have inked some white card with 'Old Paper', 'Frayed Burlap' and Walnut Stain' Distress inks. I then stamped some musical script and swirls with Acrylic paint onto the background before using the 'Trellis' embossing folder from Couture Creations to stamp some green Acrylic paint onto the background. I then stamped a clock face with 'Walnut Stain' Distress ink and embossed with clear powder and heat embossed in gold some Ink splats that I had stamped. I then finished the background off with some Fran-tage and some Gold Gilding Wax. I embossed some white card again using the 'Trellis' embossing folder and added some more gilding wax for the layering. I stamped the Carnation with Black Archival Ink and painted using Acrylic Paints and cut out. The sentiment is stamped and embossed and the frame has been made with a corner stamp that I have stamped on either side of the sentiment. Then I used a circle Spellbinders die to drawer around with a Perfect Medium Embossing Ink Pen and embossed the line in gold before cutting out to create the unique shape. I have finished the card with some Perfect Pearls, a variety of ribbons and trim and a string of pearls. The card is 4 1/2 x 8 inches. 
Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

Sweet Peas


Hello, today I have a card to show you that I have made using a stamp of some Sweet Peas which is from Dimension Stamps. I have stamped the image with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured it using Copic Markers. The background papers are from Joy Crafts. The butterfly is a stamp that has been in my stash for a while, as is the sentiment stamp. I have used the 'Fancy Flourish' die from Cheery -Lynn and made some flowers that are 'supposed' to be Sweet Peas, but I'm still not sure they look very life like. I have added Silver Gilding Wax, Stickles and Fran-tage to the background papers and the ribbon, lace and pearls are from my stash. The card is 6 x 6 inches.
